Starring Harriet Andersson, Gunnar Björnstrand, Max von Sydow, Lars Passgård

A young woman (Harriet Andersson) retreats to an isolated island to recover from a psychological break, accompanied by her husband (Max von Sydow), her adolescent brother (Lars Passgård), and her father (Gunnar Björnstrand), an acclaimed writer who is fascinated by her condition. As old family tensions bubble to the surface, she begins to communicate with a grotesque vision of God. Awarded the 1962 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Through a Glass Darkly inaugurates Bergman's cycle of chamber dramas contending with spiritual longing and crises of faith. 

Shown in conjunction with the film course Through a Lens Darkly: Mid-Century Bergman, Through a Glass Darkly will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D.
